  • Ambulance Chasing: A Social Media Success Story

    Ambulance Chasing: A Social Media Success Story

    Since childhood, I've always been fascinated by the ambulance chasing lawyer commercials you see on television. The commercials include the personal injury lawyers that provide legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of somebody else. In TV shows and movies, they're the lawyers in the polyester suits spending their time convincing clients they should be compensated for their personal injury. In real life, I believe them to be more respectable and professional than the stereotype allows. What I find fascinating is, love them or hate them, the commercials work. Those trial lawyers receive almost instant name recognition through their pitch on television.

    But when it comes to social media, do we really want people selling us their products and services based on our personal tragedies?

  • Why More Health Care Organizations Are Turning to SaaS Solutions

    Why More Health Care Organizations Are Turning to SaaS Solutions

    There’s no denying it: The cloud has become an integral part of the health care delivery system. According to one recent survey, 83 percent of all health care organizations are using cloud-based services, with the vast majority of those services Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.

    This represents a marked increase over the past few years, where health care organizations expressed reluctance to take advantage of the cloud due to concerns about security, regulatory compliance issues, and questions about functionality during implementation. In fact, the same survey found that only 6 percent of health care organizations have no plans to leverage the cloud in any way.

    So why the sudden shift? To answer that question, you have to start by looking at how providers are using SaaS solutions.

    Apple is often on the cutting edge of technological advances, so it probably shouldn't be a surprise that the company uses big data extensively. Having said that, it’s important to note that it wasn’t always this way. Other businesses like Google were heavily involved in big data years before Apple took the leap, but Apple has worked tirelessly to catch up to the competition. Now, the company has become enmeshed in big data analytics, with the technology driving many of their most important decisions. It’s true that Apple remains highly secretive about how they use big data in many cases, but that hasn’t prevented some interesting insights from being divulged.
